Amarillo, TX - A bounty hunter will spend 15 years behind bars for killing an Amarillo fugitive.

The crime happened in Plainview back in February. The jury agreed with prosecutors that Jarrod Flaming shot Derek Graves while trying to pick him up for warrants out of Amarillo.

Police say Graves was unarmed and there was no reason to shoot him.

At the time, Flaming also did not have a bounty hunter's license in Texas.
